Sydney bank accounts hacked in $1.5 million ‘tap and pay’ fraud

Sydney bank accounts hacked in $1.5 million ‘tap and pay’ fraud

Three men have been charged over an elaborate “tap and pay” scam that saw $1.5 million stolen from at least 45 hacked bank accounts across Sydney.

NSW Fraud and Cybercrime police allege a sophisticated syndicate ported mobile phones, illegally accessed bank accounts through mobile apps, and used HCE technology, which provides an exact virtual representation of a banking card, to purchase $1.5 million in electronic and luxury items, which they then on-sold.

Early morning raids across multiple suburbs yesterday saw two men, aged 22 and 24, arrested, and fraudulent documents, illegal drugs and three firearms seized.

Another 42-year-old man was arrested last night at Sutherland police station.

Officers executed warrants at homes in Rockdale, West Ryde, Greystanes, Bankstown, and Ultimo, as well as an Auburn office and a storage facility in Camperdown.

The 24-year old man, from Greystanes, was charged with 268 offences including fraud, money laundering, dealing with identity information, unauthorised access of information and participating in a criminal group.

The 22-year-old man, from West Ryde, was charged with 21 fraud-related offences and participating in a criminal group.

The 42-year-old man was charged with fraud, dealing with identification information and possessing an unregistered firearm.

The trio have been refused bail and will appear in court today.

Police said the arrests serve as a reminder to members of the community to be increasingly vigilant in protecting their personal and financial information.

“For every advancement in technology, there is a criminal looking for a way to exploit it for their own advantage,” Fraud and Cybercrime Squad Commander Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis said.

“Personal information from documents such as bank statements, and phone or utility bills, can be used to access bank accounts, port mobile phones, or take over an identity completely.”

He said while police were doing everything they could to combat cyber criminals, they urged the community to be aware of scammers and to do everything possible to prevent their information from being stolen.

Best ways to avoid identity fraud

Best ways to avoid identity fraud

Drivers lined up at the Regional Market on Thursday morning to get rid off all their personal documents.

The AARP offered the free shredding event. Shredding personal documents is one of the simplest ways to protect yourself from identity theft.

The AARP says every two seconds, someone’s identity is stolen and disposing of documents with your social security number, bank account information, even your address can make all the difference.

14 other free shredding events will be happening across New York — all part of state’s “operation stop scams” initiative.

Shredding services are being performed by third parties. All documents and information provided for shredding are subject to those parties’ privacy and informational security policies

For those who cannot attend an Operation: Stop Scams event, security experts urge consumers to shred the following types of materials to avoid having sensitive information compromised:

Old documents: Papers that carry your Social Security number, birth date, signature, account numbers, passwords or PIN numbers.
Banking: Canceled or unused checks. Shred deposit slips and ATM and credit card receipts, once you receive your monthly statements.
Credit Cards: Preapproved credit card applications and incentive/gift checks from credit card companies.
Medical: unneeded medical bills.
Investments: Investment account statements.
Obsolete ID cards: Expired driver’s licenses, medical insurance cards and passports.

Fraud Prevention Month: Police provide tips to avoid being scammed

March is Fraud Prevention Month, and also, the beginning of tax season. Waterloo Regional Police’s fraud branch says the majority of fraud reports they’re receiving lately, are from residents claiming they’ve been contacted by the Canada Revenue Agency, and asked to pay a fine. “Never give out personal information about yourself, your bank, your credit history, your birth date, your social insurance number, so private information should never be released,” says Staff Sergeant Alison Bevington. The Canada Revenue Agency and other businesses will not ask for detailed personal information over the phone or e-mail. Read More….
